They are really shit at keeping teams onside now too. We went from apparently having a line showing the ten metre line to barely seeing a camera shot of the defensive line. And every time we do see it the teams have a curved defensive line or are just completely offside. The Eels and the Storm have been the worst at it this year.
Were you there at the Melbourne/Cowboys double header last year? Dead-set Melbourne were always 2m in-front of the referee, blatant and nothing was said all game. Everytime the Cowboys would try and get around the Storm, one of their outside blokes would leave early and nothing.

at the Cowboys vs Broncos game at Lang Park early this year, one of the Cowboys players was deadset standing in front of the ref, to the point where he was blocking the refs view of the play the ball ... yet no penalty.

hell from where we were sitting in the stands you could clearly see the ref move his head to look around the Cowboys player.

I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the replay of that Broncos/Cowboys game. I believe I posted pictures on here but the 10m was a complete and utter farce.

You hate to whinge about the referees but when you notice details like that it just rips your heart out. Players bend rules all the time, but when the referee is just incompetent it hurts.

I'm more surprised that the police have apologised for something and their union hasn't come out and said they are %100 in the right.

So he was spotted wearing a QLD jersey? Isn't that the textbook definition of bringing trouble upon yourself? Stupid man.

EDIT: Or maybe I'm the definition of "hook, line and sinker"... equally stupid man.

It was photos shopped. Not well either.

There are dozens of meme pics popping up around Origin time on Facebook. What's the big deal with this one? Sounds like sand in the vagina.

Matt Cecchin will be retiring at the end of the season.

He received death threats after the World Cup match between Tonga and England but the ongoing criticism is what's forcing him to quit the NRL.
